How are countries working to reduce the negative impact they have on the rainforest?

    Brazil, as an example, has a number of laws which prevet unbridled development of rainforest land. The country presently has strict limits on logging near waterways or on mountain slopes. Brazil’s 1965 forest code requires that all Amazon landowners preserve 80% of their land as forest. There is however a bill currently passing through that Nation’s Senate which repeals a number of environmental protection policies as well as proposed amnesty for illegal logging which occurred in protected areas prior to July of 2008.
